Hi, I hope all are safe and healthy.
I want to setup a minimum system for running Doby Atmos in my studio with Nuendo 10.
I don’t need any digital audio console.
I know I should have a DAW with Audio interface and also Dolby Atmos Production/Mastering Suite and a monitor controller, but I don’t know which models are better.
Can anyone recommend the best solution?
With Nuendo 11 you can do object based routing in the box - so you may not need any additional products. If you want to just do atmos beds you don’t even need N11 - earlier versions can do that.
I’d recommend an RME audio card -plus whatever 7.1.4 monitoring you prefer.
Monitor controller - well there aren’t a huge amount to choose from but if you go RME then the ARC ($100!) will probably work, at least for volume.
As Dr Strangelove said, with N11 you won’t need the Mastering Suite.
Have a look at the QSC Core 110f, you can use it as a USB interface, or connect with Dante or AES67. It is a very powerful unit for control room tuning, though it needs some programming. You can create your own user control interface that runs on ipad or android.
Hi Masoud, in our theatrical Atmos studio it handles 44 speakers, of which 3 are biamped. So it’s more than enough to handle 7.1.4, and allows for tons of flexibility.
With N11 you don’t need any extra software to create and mix Dolby Atmos for Home Entertainment, so no production or Mastering Suite.
And if you go the QSC Qsys core route, as I said it works as a room dsp as well as a USB audio interface, so basically that’s all you need (and some time to program it nicely to suit your needs).
Yes, however for recording you might prefer different audio interfaces that offer microphone preamps and things like that.
But the Core 110 has 8 analog inputs that you can connect preamps to, or can take a Dante signal from a mic-preamp-to-Dante box (like the Focusrite range)
Thanks for your last guide.
Could you tell me how you can connect 44 speakers to QSC?
if I buy Nuendo11 and a BSS BLU100+BOB2 (for controlling 12 speakers from my Motu 24I/O audio interface) is it a good configuration?
Could you please tell me which equipment do you use for Dolby Atmos ?
